What I eat in a day (when working from home)

There's no denying that all our lives have been turned upside down by recent events. Like, what the actual fck universe?!

Most humans hate change - particularly when it's thrust upon us with very little warning and it affects our everyday routines. Hard No.

My reaction? Little freakout, mass purchase of gym equipment, writing a new plan, engaging a PT and trying to be even more structured with working hours to I have some sort of separation (if not by distance) between play and work. It's not easy peeps, and I'm sending plenty of time snacking and then realising I didn't need to eat at all. SO her's the honest truth about a usual day working from home and my diet:
